I've had a hard time settling on a project since finishing the little lace bag.
January is always such a hectic time at work. Can I just blame it on that? Thanks.
I started a bit of lace for a bag edging but it was working up rather larger than I liked and then I dropped a stitch. Toss.
I cast on for that mitered heart sachet from Interweave. I'd link but the pattern seems to no longer be available. It had a backward loop cast on. Yuck. I think I did two rows. Toss.
I started a large lace stole with lovely yarn I bought at last year's Stitches South. I almost finished the wee little edging that is only 6-11 stitches wide. I still like it... but I put it aside.
Everything just seemed way too hard. So it is a real puzzle to me how I've landed on stranded colorwork and using yarn I don't even particularly enjoy! Ah, sweet mysteries of life.
I'm blaming Paula over at the Knitting Pipeline podcasts. That Ravelry group is starting a Norwegian knitalong. Paula is knitting a sweater, but, even though it is right chilly around the cul-de-sac this winter, I know a stranded colorwork sweater is WAY too warm for here even if I was up to sweater knitting (which I am not).
So that is how I ended up with Rose Wristers. I'm knitting a pair of wristers, or pulsewarmers, from the book I got Christmas 2009. So far at least, my inner Norwegian is happy.
